30 Billion Cells in 120 Seconds Using FieldView

Intelligent Light user Dr. Kenji Ono (Univ. of Tokyo & RIKEN) is working on a project for a Japanese automaker with the goal of turning around 10-20 high-fidelity, unsteady analyses overnight using over 10,000 HPC cores on Riken’s K-Computer.  The results included over 30 billion cells and over 1TB per time step and were post-processed using FieldView on a 256 processor visualization server (x86).    FieldView with parallel I/O and extraction read, created an iso-surface (laplacian of P), and wrote an XDB file in 120 seconds quickly making the big data accessible and useful.  The 15M polygon isosurface was explored interactively on a laptop during the VINAS User Conference in Japan.
